No Till Growers and TOPP (Transition to Organic Partnership Program) Meeting

July 7 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

FREE

 Join us for a No-till Growers and TOPP (Transition to Organic Partnership Program) Meeting on Sunday, July 7, 4-7 p.m. at Frith Farm in Scarborough, Maine. This meeting is geared toward farmers who are growing using no-till, ecological practices or are transitioning to these methods. There will be opportunities to learn about transitioning to organic as well as being a mentor/mentee in the TOPP program. Food will be provided. Feel free to come early to tour the farm on your own.

REGISTER HERE.

Agenda:

  • Introductions.
  • Opportunities with the Transition to Organic Partnership Program.
  • Deep dive into compost and mulch uses on Frith Farm.
  • Structured and interactive discussion on what motivates you this time of year, what is working really well, and what challenges you are facing on your farm.
  • Time for questions and ideas for future meetings.

Background:

If you missed the first meet up at Late Bloom Farm in May, the goal of these meetings is to get to know one another with the idea of continuing to meet up to build community, see other no-till farms in action throughout New England, learn from one another by diving deep into specific topics of each host farm, and discuss what successes looks like on your farm, and what challenges we are facing on our farms. Let’s take lessons from our fungal friends and network!

Carpools could be arranged! If you have any questions about the no-till growers meetings, contact [email protected]. For questions about TOPP and organic mentorship, contact [email protected]. We are looking forward to our future collaborations!
